Whether as an undergraduate or postgraduate, all international students are eligible* for our International Accommodation Award.

What is it?

The International Accommodation Award means the cost of your univeristy-managed housing is included in your tuition fees.

Depending on which accommodation you choose, this will either be totally free or discounted by £2,000.

The University has several different accommodation options to choose from.

How it works

When you make an application to study at Aberystwyth University, you will be given access to the Accommodation Portal, which opens in April.

You will be offered the International Accommodation Award for Cwrt Mawr. If Cwrt Mawr is where you want to live, you should accept this offer. If you would prefer to live in a different residence, you should reject the offer and select where you would prefer to live. A £2,000 discount on the cost of the accommodation will then be applied.

Please note…

If you initially move into Cwrt Mawr, but later decide to move to a different university-managed building, then the £2,000 discount will be applied to the cost of the new accommodation on a pro-rata basis (at a nightly rate, minus any time lived in Cwrt Mawr). Moving accommodation is subject to availability and requires you to complete a Transfer Request.

All MBA students will be required to move to alternative accommodation during the summer vacation.
